Yarrow Stadium repairs and refurbishment
May 2020 update: The Yarrow Stadium works programme has been placed on hold pending a careful review of proposals taking into account changing circumstances. The targeted rates associated with the project continue unchanged into the 2020/2021 year, noting that existing loans and commitments still need funding, as will any future options.
The Taranaki Regional Council has approved a repair and refurbishment programme to address issues surrounding the earthquake-prone grandstands at Yarrow Stadium, with a budget of up to $50 million for the work. These updates and documents relate to the project and the lead-up to its approval.
